Progress Report

Heh. It's been a week since I last posted. Anybody else feel like their summer is passing at warp speed? Here's what I've been up to:

Knucks:

Yeah I know...weird name. But if you can get past that, they're pretty awesome. Every winter at work I just about lose my fingers to frostbite but I’m always way too busy with the xmos knitting to knit myself any F-less Gs. So when I saw the pattern in the new Knitty I jumped on it. I'm all about doing things early this year. If that isn't enough to impress you, I'm using the required yarn (rowan felted tweed) which I already had in my stash thanks to the generosity of the v. wunnerful Angela.

River:

I have the pattern mostly memorized, I've made my peace with the KSH, and I’m one-third of the way finished already...all is right with the world.

New Yarn! (Installment 1):

I’ve been pretty good about not accumulating too much new yarn this year, but I’ve been slipping lately. The first of it is eight skeins of Briggs and Young Regal, from Schoolhouse Press, for the Saddle Shoulder Aran Cardi pattern I bought last spring to make for the Thunkster. This was going to be his Christmas sweater, but then I just bought some more yarn today for a completely different “Christmas sweater". Not sure how that will work out. Let's just say I'm not having any trouble finding cute manpatterns lately.

That's it for now. I'm going to go eat toast now.

You're welcome! Before I even read the post I saw the picture and said, "hey, that looks like felted tweed!"

Your plain Knucks are lovely. Very toasty and practical looking, in the best of ways.

How have you made peace with the demonic KSH? Maestra, I wish to learn your secret! Is it just a matter of perseverence?

That Aran Cardi looks lovely, and the yarn looks yummy. I can't wait to live vicariously through your knitting--my Beloved won't wear anything as busy as cables. So sad.

I like the Knucks!

I like menswear style clothing, so it seems like there are way more cute boy patterns than girl patterns *poutface*

Your new projects looks lurvly, I'm intrigued by the Knucks. I'm a big fan of the rogue-ish fingerless look.

The river looks so fantastic. Beautiful yarn!

River!! Beautiful! Wow...I love the way it looks, so feminine. And the knucks: very, very cute. I'm a fan of tweed.

Your River looks gorgeous. After you make peace with the kidsilk it's all downhill.

I need to follow your lead and make some g=fingerless gloves myself - my office is toasty now, but it won't be this winter.
